Our Favorite Vegan Influencers
For quite some time now, veganism is no longer just a social media trend but rather a popular lifestyle.
Wonder what a vegan lifestyle looks like? Well, vegans eliminate all animal products from their diet and some vegans take it even further and eliminate also non-vegan clothing and all non-vegan beauty products.
The number of vegans worldwide increased significantly over the last couple of years. Whether it's for the environment, the animals, or for health, there are many reasons to go vegan.
